Corona FAQ

The health of everyone taking part is our highest priority, and we’re pulling out all the stops to make sure that the event will adhere to all distance and hygiene regulations. Each area of the main conference and all associated venues will have individually-tailored safety plans and special hygiene procedures – and we’ll keep you up to date at every step of the way. So, barring any unforeseen changes, MW:M is happening – and if you want to be there, we’re making it safe for you to enjoy it!

Please note: Due to the ongoing dynamic of the situation, new adjustments may be necessary in the coming weeks. This page will be updated continuously.

Will MW:M20 take place in Berlin as planned?

Yes. MW:M20 will take place from 3rd – 5th November as a hybrid event – onsite in Berlin and online all over the internet!

How many guests can safely attend MW:M this year?

Due to the current Coronavirus distancing regulations, a maximum of approx. 500 people will be allowed to stay at our conference venue Alte Münze at the same time.

Who will enforce the safety measures?

Most Wanted: Music will strictly apply and control all current hygiene and safety regulations.

How will safety measures affect the MW:M participants?

There might be slightly longer waiting times at the main entrance and also when waiting for access to the individual conference and concert rooms and stages. We hope for your understanding.

Face masks must be worn the whole time unless when staying on fixed seats or standing positions in the conference or concert rooms, and for the occasional consumption of food and drinks.

How is the handling of the hygiene requirements at the satellite events regulated?

All rooms and surfaces will be cleaned regularly. Hand contact surfaces and sanitary facilities will be disinfected at short intervals during the event.

What can we expect from the new virtual conference formats?

If you can’t join Most Wanted: Music in Berlin, you still won’t miss out – a ticket for the virtual part of this year’s conference will let you play an active role. Many public talks and sessions will be broadcast. There will be a high degree of interactivity between attendees and partners, and numerous possibilities to get in contact with our high-profile speakers and experts.

Will I need special computer equipment or software to participate in the online conference?

No. Your regular computer, tablet or smartphone is all you need. You can easily access the virtual conference via your web browser or download the Most Wanted: Music app (details coming soon). We recommend to use both: watch our inspiring programme on your laptop or desktop computer and navigate through the conference and meet other attendees and exhibitors via your mobile device.

What networking opportunities do I have this year when I participate virtually in the conference?

Most Wanted: Music has always offered a number of general and tailor-made networking opportunities, and this year will be no different. Just use your app, browse through our database of delegates, speakers, and sponsors, and you can easily schedule meetings or start talking to your fellow attendees – whether you’re onsite or online.

Are ticket costs refunded in the event of a Corona-related cancellation?

Should the event be postponed or cancelled completely, you can either retain your ticket and use it for next year’s event at this year’s attractive price, or you can contact us and we’ll be happy to help you with returning your ticket.

Will sponsorship packages be refunded if the event is not held?

If Most Wanted: Music should be unable to keep our promises, we’ll of course also release our partners from contractual obligations. All details can be found in the individual partner agreements.
